260 Exquisite Patterns by Hitomi Shida
En riktigt rolig utmaning att sätta sig in i mönsterbeskrivningarna, med för mig lite ovana symboler! Det tar kanske lite extra tid om man inte är van vid stickbeskrivningar på engelska- men på det hela taget lätt tillgängliga och vackra mönster som ser mycket krångligare ut än de är! En riktig mönsterbibel för den som vill få tips på strukturer, bårder, flät och spetsmönster att själv laborera med i olika stickprojekt!
Så inspirerande. Om man hade tid o tålamod skulle man vilja sticka något i alla mönstren. Vackra bilder riktigt ögongodis
"Roehm translates the imaginative work of Shida, one of Japan's best-known hand-knitting designers, into English for the first time. Shida gained an international following with the Japanese publication of a book of couture knitting patterns a decade ago, and here presents hundreds of other patterns, adding scallops, yokes, and edgings to her offerings For intrepid knitters looking for a challenge, the pages of stunning stitches will prove well worth the effort." --Publishers Weekly "experienced knitters will be tempted to give it a go after paging through the handsomely photographed knit swatches, each of which is accompanied by unlabeled charts. For those who want to jump right in, there are a few patterns for socks and a hat. A black-and-white photo section that shows how to knit the stitches concludes. A feast for the eyes, and perhaps the hands." --Booklist "Know an expert knitter looking for a challenge? Then you gotta get 'em knitting guru Hitomi Shida's book, which includes step-by-step instructions for making 260 gorgeous and intricate stitches."-- Cosmopolitan
